The Austin-Travis County Food Policy Board advises both Austin City Council and the Travis County Commissioners Court about ways to improve the availability of safe, nutritious, and affordable food that is grown locally and sustainably for all residents, particularly those in need.

The Board was officially established through a City of Austin Ordinance #20081120-058 . A Travis County Commissioners Court ordinance was approved soon after. The board began meeting in the spring of 2009.

The purpose of the Food Policy Board is to:

  • Address health disparities
  • Increase local sustainable food production
  • End food injustices
  • Ensure the community has a voice in policy decisions that support a healthy and equitable food system
